Project Triforce, Badassery replica weapons to scalePosted 1:34 am on Wednesday, July 18th, 2012 by Adam "Kharakov" Kharatian
Many of us have often wondered what it would be like to hold, feel, and smell the weapon of choice from our favorite video games. One such way would be to construct our own replicas, but that takes some serious time and dedication, not to mention knowledge and skills that most of us simply do not have. Whether it’s for cosplay or just to mount on our walls, these weapons are more than just pieces to show off for house guests, they are memories of battles that will remain with us for years to come.
Project Triforce has created a solution for those of us with the inability to replicate these fantasy arms. Warning, these are not cheap Chinatown knockoffs, and they can get pricey. Most of them start at around $300, not including tax and shipping. Why must they pwn your wallet so badly you ask? Well not only are these weapons and models fully licensed, but are completely perfect down to the last detail, and many include LED lights that run on an internal lithium ion battery.
Interestingly enough the products are not only precise to scale but also to weight. The Mass Effect M-8 Avenger Assault Rifle (a personal favorite) as shown below is about 20lbs and 34″ long. It is hand cast and finished in highly realistic metallic polystone.
Available for pre-order currently is the Batman : Arkam City set. The Batarang is shown below.
